I live at Baseline and the 101 and if I leave at 6pm, I'll be in my seat when the puck drops!

Regarding the East vs. West "issue"- I was born here almost 34 years ago... for me the west side of Phoenix was the older part of town with all the dirty industrial places, and Paradise Valley where I lived was the newer area. So maybe that just stuck in people's minds over the years. I think a lot of the West folks are a little too sensitive when it comes to this subject and try to make more of it than it is.

I realize traffic here is much worse than it use to be but go to Atlanta or LA and tell me it is bad here compared to their cities. I do agree the public transit is rotten (and non-existant), part of that might be because the city is so spread out. It'll be 30 years before the light rail project makes it this far north.
I work north of the Biltmore (Lincoln / 24th St). Getting to the I10 alone is a 30 minute ordeal during traffic hours.

I'm not making this **** up. I had to go to the Job around 5 for the hockey clinic the other day, it took me exactly 90 minutes, and there was no crash or closed lanes. I was about to lose my mind.

I believe you totally. I work McDowell & Central. Leave around 5:30 ish straight down 7th ave to Dunlap and accoss to 83rd to the Job. always takes at least 50 minutes. I know its a back track but Dunlap is very rarely crowded and 7th opens up big time just after Glendale for a pretty smooth ride. Doing any other streets like Glendale, McD or Northern is simply priming your self to become a homicidal road rage maniac.

Lived in So Cal for a very long time. More than 60 miles from Staples Center. My lawn grew faster than traffic moved on the freeway system there. 2.5 to 3 hours minimum to get to a game no matter what time of day you travelled... Phoenix to Glendale is a breeze compared to THAT.

The 10 isn't *too* bad once you get west of about 43rd or 51st avenue. The one time I went to the arena and it took me two hours, there was an accident involving a big rig at 35th avenue...so that had traffic backed up for miles, well onto the 202. I felt like shooting someone, it was that bad.

Normally, if I get the chance, I leave extra-extra-extra early for the games; like around 3 or so, so I can get through downtown without much of an issue. Once I make it to the west side, I'll just kick it somewhere until 5:30 when the doors open up.

I live in Toronto and the first time I went to the States was to visit a friend in Texas, and I remember going to a wal-mart and there was a lizard just hanging off the wall near the front door, and people really not seeming to care or notice the thing... very strange for a Canadian

Lots of lizards and geckos. They eat all sorts of bugs and if you have one in your yard you count yourself lucky. They can get pretty big too. The only one you have to watch out for is the Gila Monster.

Why in the world would anyone want to move to Florida? There is no place in this country I would rather live less than Florida.

While not one of my top choices, there are many others places I would rather not live than florida.

For example, North Dakota.

You are crazy. I'll take NoDak every day of the week, and twice on Sunday. We are talking about FLORIDA for Christ's sake. If you putting sinking Florida into the ocean on a ballot, I would vote for it.

Come on man. ND over FLA. While Florida is not that key, I'd still rather be there than in ND. Sun and Palm trees, come on it's like AZ with humidity and water.

No, it's nothing like Arizona. I'm not talking about the landscape or the weather. I don't know how much time you've spent there, but I'm guessing not much.

What parts? It's a big state. I've been to Jacksonville, Tampa, Orlando and the surrounding area.

What is your gripe with Florida, exactly? I hate to play the majority testimonial card, but there's a reason it's such a popular destination for retirements and vacations.

I was miserable there. Sure, it's nice out and so on but the humidity kills. I don't miss it one bit. I mean that and its one of the poorest cities (Miami) in the country. I guess I didn't see any of the "nice" parts of Florida. If they even exist. Though my sister lives there in Vero Beach and says its great.

Florida is like any state, in that it has bad parts and good parts. Since it's in the deep south, the bad parts can be really bad, but since it's a gorgeous state, the good parts are really good. The touristy parts and the hick parts aren't so great, but Florida definitely has some nice places.

Tampa is probably the best part of Florida next to South Beach. It has one of the highest populations in the state of people under 50, there is a ton to do, it's a beautiful city. If it wasn't for the 70% humidity and 90+ temps I'd move to Tampa in a heartbeat. The rest of the state I agree with you on, I'd rather live just about anywhere than Florida.
